Web Anatomy was a surprisingly poor book given the authors pedigrees. The authors try to build the case for "design frameworks" a not altogether distinguished resource apart from design patterns and components.

The distinction is somewhat arbitrary. For example in many implementations such as the MailChimp pattern library, design patterns and components (reusable code), live together.

Ultimately the ambiguity forces the authors to spend too much text justifying itself.

The book effectively is broke

I like the concept but feel this book is a little lacking. I feel the authors should have avoided specifics and just focussed on developing and consuming interaction frameworks or gone for the full reference guide like Christian Crumlish and Erin Malone’s Designing Social Interfaces.
